Transportation advocates relieved with Door2Door Rides decision

Offering seven times more rides than they did in 2018 would have been a tall task for DoorTran Mobility Manager Pam Busch if it was not for the Door County Board of Supervisors agreeing to fund Door2Door Rides on Tuesday. Formal action will be taken next month, but the board decided to fund the shared ride taxi transportation system for the next three years at its current levels while it looks for cost efficiencies in the process. DoorTran provided about 5,000 free to reduced cost rides in 2018, which is a far cry from the over 42,000 Door2Door Rides did in that same time. Busch says it was good news for everyone that Door2Door Rides is sticking around.

Busch hopes DoorTran can help the county find solutions to fund the popular service, which has an estimated taxpayer cost of $170,000 in 2020 and up to $220,000 within five years.
